Through his work within his youth group, he became aware of the Souper Bowl of Caring, applied and got accept to serve from 2016-2017. From this experience, Mike hopes to learn how to bring this movement of giving to the people of Chicago so he can truly make a difference in the lives of those in need.
From everything you've just heard, it shouldn't surprise you that Mike doesn't plan on stopping once his term is up. Mike Thompson has big dreams, and he dreams of one day becoming an international politician. His goal: to leave a lasting mark on the world by helping the entire African American population in America and bringing down mass incarceration. However, none of this will, or would have been, possible without the support of his number #1 fan and role model. His mother. From her, Mike has learned the value of hard work, the gift of compassion, and the importance of helping others.
With the support of his family and friends, Mike Thompson will continue to be one of the most inspiring people I have ever met.
